    I think Muscovies take longer than regular ducks? I have Indian Runners in the incubator, due to hatch around the 29th.(I think thats right, I have it written down too,lol, because I have old times some days!!) I put them in the day after Labor Day.

    Yea,
    Muscovies take 35 to 37 days, mine took 35 days exactly, last time by mama duck.
